I did see a notification of scheduled maintenance on Goggle code over
the last recent while - may be it is related?

>>> as mentioned before, syntax highlighting can be customized by editing the respective configuration files in the resource directory.
>>> What can (unfortunately) not be customized at the moment are the color used for highlighting the current line, the color used for bracket matching, and the color used to mark the extent of an autocompletion expansion.

>>> are used for the highlighting e.g. the active line in TW or text that was just put in by using the auto-completion (see highlight2.JPG above). Wouldn't the use of it produce a better contrast, depending on the current OS color theme (w/o Win Xp-Vista and OS X)?
>>> The issue is a different one. If you normally select text (e.g. with the mouse), the current color theme should be respected. In autocompletion, this is no normal selection (e.g., if you hit "Del", you won't remove it), to which the QPalette::Highlight* items above refer. Instead, everything that was added as a result of the autocompletion is highlighted for convenience, so the user can see what has changed. If this were colored the same way as a normal selection, the two would be indistinguishable, which is not the intended behavior.
>>> I obviously do see the problem, however. Could you add this to the issue tracker on Google Code so we don't forget about this?
>> I just wanted to add it, but it doesn't work, very strange. After clicking "submit", the page loads for a second, but then my text is still there and nothing happens, no notification at all. I'll try it again tomorrow, seems to be a google code problem.
